Social workers will use this definition when deciding what action to take to protect a child.

The ability to identify and intervene in cases of mental or emotional abuse will be a key part of the document.</p><p>Local authority funding for safeguarding children and young people is included within core funding for children's social care which comes from the Department for Community and Local Government's Formula Grant and local taxation. Funding is not ringfenced and it is for local authorities to decide how to apply their funding across the services they deliver. A report from the Audit Commission[1] published in November 2013 found that children's social care has been largely protected from spending reductions from 2010/11 to 2013/14.</p><p>[1] http://www.audit-commission.gov.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Tough-Times-2013-Councils-Responses-to-Financial-Challenges-w1.pdf</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The surveys of childminders and parents were not stand-alone surveys but part of a much wider piece of action research by IPSOS Mori and Ecorys to gather findings from child minder agency trials. The surveys of childminders and parents were carried out to supplement fieldwork carried out with organisations trialling and testing elements of the agency model. The surveys were not intended to be fully representative of local populations and sample sizes were small. 1,622 survey packs were sent out to childminders and 3,426 packs were sent out to parents. The final closing date of the survey was 7 March 2014; the research is still being finalised.</p><p> </p> more like this

It is therefore given at a level of generality that applies to all living things.
